Folding system enhances Voyager's seats

CHRYSLER'S Grand Voyager is now available with a fold-flat seating system which dispenses with the need to remove seats.

Stow 'n' Go seating allows the second and third row seats to be folded into the floor, creating a flat loading area.

The rear three-seat bench now offers a 60/40 split and the seats also fold into storage bins to avoid damage to seat backs.

Simon Elliott, managing director for Chrysler Group in the UK, said: 'Stow 'n' Go seating on both the second and third row seats makes the Grand Voyager a totally flexible vehicle.'

Installing the system involved using super high density (SHD) foam cushion seating, originally developed by NASA to improve seat comfort for astronauts, and designing a new underbody to create the storage areas.

A new fuel tank, exhaust system, parking brake cables, rear climate control lines and modified rear suspension were also needed.

Other new features include an overhead rail system on Limited and Limited XS models, which include an overhead console with up to six moveable and removeable storage bins, rear temperature controls and an optional DVD screen.

The premium for the Stow 'n' Go Grand Voyager is £330 more than the 2004 model, starting at £25,720 on-the- road.
